The Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training (DLT) has selected Geographic Solutions to provide a web-based Labor Exchange and Case Management Virtual OneStop software solution that will meet the needs of job seekers and employers; as well as Rhode Island case managers, administration and staff members.
The state-of-the-art Rhode Island system will become one of sixteen statewide systems using Virtual OneStop components for WIA, Wagner-Peyser and Federal reporting. The Virtual OneStop system will provide an MIS system that will be flexible enough to adapt to data requirements at all government levels, yet provide secure IT controls and provide staff with improved, easy access to queries such as customer registration/service queries, customized reports, as well as federal reports and standardized management reports.
The Rhode Island Virtual OneStop system includes a full case management system to assist workforce staff in effectively managing their federal workforce programs and submitting performance and management reports to the federal government. Specific Virtual OneStop component modules will be used in the system for Labor Exchange, Individual Fund Tracking, Workforce Programs and Case Management, as well as comprehensive reporting.
Job seekers and employers in Rhode Island will be able to use the system to access a wide array of employment related services including job searches, resume development, skills matching, labor market information, job postings, and candidate searches.
